The Hornets are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. The Raptors are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games. The over is 19-8 in Hornets last 27 road games. The over is 12-4 in Raptors last 16 Thursday games. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Toronto and 12-5-1 in the last 18 meetings.

These teams just played each other, and it's not easy to beat up on the same team twice in a short span. Also, as bad as the Hornets are, let's not act like the Toronto Raptors are lighting the world on fire. The Raptors have been sluggish offensively, they don't dominate at home like past years, and they win in the favorite role by an average of just 2 points. Lot of free buckets here. Give me the Hornets.
